3 Ingredient Skinny Pumpkin Muffins

Pin It

With all of the holiday goodies and treats floating around this time of year, these super duper simple, semi-homemade SKINNY pumpkin muffins are the perfect recipe to curb those cravings!



Now, I've seen the 2 ingredient pumpkin muffins, using a box of cake mix and pumpkin puree all over the internet,  but this recipe is a little different. I decided to start with a box of pumpkin bread instead of cake, so the base is a little healthier, and then replaced the egg and oil in the recipe with fruit puree, for a lower calorie, lower cholesterol, lower fat dessert.


This bread mix version is a lot more muffin-ey than the cake mix version and a lot more moist, so it stays fresh for days! The best part, is this recipe is sooo easy and you can choose which fruit puree to use, I like using apple sauce, mashed banana or pumpkin puree the best, for an ultra tender and moist muffin, with a lot less fat.


3 Ingredient Skinny Pumpkin Muffins

Yield: 12 muffins

Ingredients
  • 1 box of pumpkin bread mix
  • fruit puree (apple sauce, mashed banana or pumpkin puree)
  • water

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray muffin tin with non-stick spray. 

 Empty pumpkin bread mix in a medium bowl. 

Replace the amount of oil called for on the box with equal amounts fruit puree of choice and add to bowl. 

Replace each egg called for, with about 1/4 cup fruit puree and add to bowl. 

Add water called for on box (if milk is called for, replace with water).

Mix together, just until smooth and moistened. Divide batter amongst the muffin pan and bake for 20-25 minutes.






Enjoy, guilt free ;)
